Legend: “Visitor”=me. “Nicholas”=tech support guy who is either a bot or the most profound philosopher/Zen master of our day. I have boldfaced the portions that give rise to all sorts of existential musings.
Nicholas: Hi, my name is Nicholas. How may I help you?
Visitor: hi i’m looking at beds.
Visitor: does ‘foundation’ mean it has legs to stand on?
Nicholas: The lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level.
Nicholas: It’s not legs.
Nicholas: Have I answered all of your questions?
Visitor: am i correct to assume that you really are not supposed to put a box spring on the floor
Nicholas: This item comes with box spring.
Visitor: ok… my question is, would i have to buy a bed frame
Visitor: by the way, what is the point of your giving me this information earlier: “The lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level”
Nicholas: For more comfort level you can purchase bed frame.
Visitor: ok. what are the advantages of a mattress with boxspring, as opposed to a mattress that you use with a platform bed frame, with no box spring?
Nicholas: The box spring will result in the mattress being higher off the ground.
Nicholas: I hope this information is helpful to you.
Nicholas: Are there any other concerns that I can address for you?
Visitor: is one particularly more comfortable than the other?
Visitor: can you be more specific?
Visitor: which is more comfortable than which please
Nicholas: A platform bed is more adequate and flexible.
Visitor: then why do mattresses+box spring combinations cost more than a platform bed?
Nicholas: I’m so sorry,we don’t have information on this. I will forward this issue to a specialized representative in our Product Department to help you with this and you will be contacted via phone or email within 1-2 business days.
Nicholas: Please provide me your full name, email address and the phone number for the follow-up.
Visitor: [contact info provided]
Nicholas: Thanks for the details. We’ll get back to you in 1-2 business days.
Nicholas: Do you have any other questions for me?
Visitor: apparently not.
